Pasadena to alter traffic signals for Rose Parade

· Colorado Boulevard at Marengo Avenue, eastbound and westbound

· Colorado Boulevard at Garfield Avenue, eastbound

· Colorado Boulevard at Euclid Avenue, westbound

· Colorado Boulevard at Lake Avenue, eastbound and westbound

Long signal mast arms will be removed at

· Orange Grove Boulevard at Green Street, northbound and southbound

· Colorado and Orange Grove boulevards, eastbound

· Sierra Madre Boulevard at Walnut Street, southbound
